Moss Landing is a small community on the shore of Monterey Bay, California.
Moss Landing is 24 kilometres (15 miles) north-east of Monterey, so makes a perfect rest stop on trip from San Francisco to Monterey.
I stopped at Moss Landing Harbor Visitors Dock on the way to Monterey.
In 2007 a dock was installed, which has since been taken over by hundreds of sea lions. Similar to the sea lions, which famously overtook Pier 39 in San Francisco.
